PhpStorm 9.0.0 Help

Navigating with Breadcrumbs

In the HTML and XML context and in PHP classes, you can navigate through the source code using breadcrumbs that are displayed above the main editor window. The breadcrumbs show the elements of the XML/HTML file or PHP class opened in the active editor tab.

To have breadcrumbs shown in HTML or XML files, enable them and then restart PhpStorm. In PHP classes breadcrumbs are always shown by default without any steps from your side.
